Our Tasting Notes
Nose: Wood shavings, perhaps a freshly sharpened pencil, rum and raisin ice cream, plenty of floral aromas of cut grass and some Sandalwood.
Palate: There’s the signature apples and pears but with a little citrus added. Toffee sweetness attracts honey and malt.
Finish: A little peppery and some spicy ginger.
